L. PAPALUCA (Jr.) son of famous marine artist painting of clipper ship on the high seas
Oil on canvas, 16" by 21" and simple wood frame, signed in red at lower right by the artist LOUIS (LUIGI) PAPALUCA Junior. Papaluca is THE SON of an artist who is well known for his depictions of the great sailing ships, and paintings by father and son both show up at auctions all over Europe and the USA---and authorship is often confused even by auction houses. This example is quite typical of the son's work. The painting should be cleaned and varnished, and there are two punctures, one small one in the sky and another larger one somewhat hidden in the top of the rigging. There is slight stretcher bar show-through at top and a light scratch from mid ship to bottom edge. All of this can be repaired. The greens in the sea will really "pop" when this is properly cleaned, and a quality gold frame would also wonderfully enhance this work. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER PAINTINGS AND PRINTS NOW IN MY SHOP.
